This year, Bris­bane’s fa­mous Paniyiri Greek Fes­ti­val will mark 40 years. The event has grown to be­come Queens­land’s sig­na­ture cel­e­bra­tion of all things Greek and the state’s largest cul­tural fes­ti­val as well as the coun­try’s long­est run­ning Greek fes­ti­val. It's an ad­mirable suc­cess story for a cel­e­bra­tion that started in 1976 when a group of pas­sion­ate Greek Aus­tralians wanted to share their cul­tural tra­di­tions with Bris­bane. Fast for­ward to 2016 and this kalei­do­scopic cul­tural ex­plo­sion is now leg­endary. More than 60,000 peo­ple are ex­pected at Mus­grave Park and The Greek Club dur­ing the May 21-22 event weekend. Tix are $10 adults, $3 pen­sion­ers, chil­dren free. PS Don’t miss your free down­load­able Greek recipe avail­able on the Paniyiri site. Visit
